This book is a magnificent resource for anyone with an interest in fossils and the success story of the invertebrates. Fossil Invertebrates is a window into the ancient Earth when the seas teemed with ammonites, corals, sponges, molluscs, crinoids and trilobites. Some have close relatives living today, and the book demonstrates how the fossil record can shed light on today's fauna.

When searching at almost any fossil site, a collector is more likely to come across an invertebrate fossil than any other kind. This book is designed to unravel and interpret this rich fossil record. Ideal for any undergraduate or amateur fossil enthusiast, it covers all major groups of fossil invertebrates and provides illustrated descriptions of selected genera.
